500ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a finger and a half of white head that settles to reveal some really nice lacing. Aroma is mild but pleasant with citrus (pineapple and grapefruit?) and some hints of caramel. Taste is a bold bitterness with grapefruit dominating and a fruity and malty sweetness. Flavors are nicely balanced, body is medium and carbonation is adequate. A very solid brew for the style and highly recommended.

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2017 Not the bad boy they claim. While hoppy, not bitter or overpowering. Best thing about it, the aroma. Pineapple fruit punch.

Pours golden-orange with just a slight haze. Full on ripe tropical fruits in the nose - should be sweet but all of these hops are making this feel quite dry actually. Without hops it would be barleywine but this one is still relatively fresh. OK, next I bite into a pile of hops. There is also some more ripe fruits, pears, some orange, mango and papaya. Finish is dry, bittersweet and displaying resins, pine needles quite well. Good stuff, really great fix for any hop cravings you might have.

There’s loads of resinous hops in this absolute bomb, together with plenty of grapefruit and a heap of alcohol. It’s a little overwhelming, even for my tastes as a big IPA fan.

MelvinKalksma (1679) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 15, 2017

Aroma:
Medium/heavy aroma of malts, grape, orange, tropical fruit, hops, citrus and grapefruit.

Appearance:
Turbid/opaque yellow/golden beer with heavy yeast and with a slight/medium white head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, grape, orange and tropical fruit; ends slightly bitter and dry with hops, citrus and grapefruit.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. What a bucket full of a perfect mix of hops. Sweet orange, mango and a mix of soft grapes, melon and pineapple; with a superb finish of rather bitter citrus and grapefruit. Great aroma and appearance as well.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Tom’s place. Thanks zvikar. Clear gold with white film. Ripe orange, a little stale aroma. Sweet and then a little bitter with honey undertones. Medium body, honey finish, rather sticky and fizzy.
